Are you going to update to Os .246 or .284?

The 9000 was my favorite BlackBerry until the Torch.

I love the Torch for:
1. Increased app memory 512MB vs 128MB. Still could be much more.
2. Autofocus Camera. The Bold Camera takes horrible fuzzy pictures
3. Touchscreen. Makes many tasks easier and faster.
4. Larger physical screen is easy on the eyes.
5. OS6 with the Webkit browser. Too bad the 9000 will never run OS6.

Compared to the Bold 9000, the Torch needs the following improvements (Torch gen II):
1. Faster processor to keep the GUI responsive.
2. Proper charging dock with external contacts. (The microSD connector will fail in a year)
3. Lighter weight
4. Better external speaker. Nothing beats the 9000 stereo speakers for SQ so far.
4. A second convenience key
5. Improved keyboard.
